Basketball: LWC Men suffer third straight loss

By Kyle Jackson

Georgetown, KY - Poor shooting and a collection of fouls plagued the Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team this evening as they dropped their third straight Mid-South Conference match, 57-76 against Georgetown (KY).


Calvin Fugett went five of 10 from the field to lead the Blue Raiders in the game with 16 points on the night while Mark Edmond collected seven rebounds and added 10 points. As a team, the Blue Raiders shot 32.2 percent from the field going 19 of 59 and four of 23 from beyond the arc while committing 19 fouls.

The Blue Raiders (7-6, 0-5 MSC) found themselves down early as the hosts opened with a 6-0 run before Lucas Ribeiro got the first points of the evening from the free throw line for the Lindsey Wilson. The shooting didn't slow down for the Tigers as they grew their advantage to ten points later in the half at 4-14.

Lindsey Wilson continued to plug away later in the half, looking to spark their offense. After a three from Fugett and a bucket from Edmon, Lindsey Wilson got to within two points at 17-19 in the final five minutes of the opening half. Jackson Harlan went on to knock down a three in the final minute to make it a six-point game before heading into the break.

In the second half, the Blue Raiders got off on the right foot as Payton Cundiff knocked down another three making it 27-33 in advantage of the Tigers. The threes continued to fall for both sides as the teams took to shooting from behind the arc. After the rapid fire shooting the Tigers held a 45-36 lead with 13 minutes left in the game.

Later in the half, Elijah Jordan put away a layup to cut the lead to within 11 at 42-53 but Georgetown only grew in confidence as they went on to knock down three more back-to-back three pointers to make it 68-47, opening their largest lead of the game at 21 points.

The Tigers finished the game going nine of 27 from the three-point line shooting 33.3 percent to win the game 76-57.

The Lindsey Wilson men's basketball team returns to action on Saturday when they travel north to take on rival Campbellsville University in the Battle of Highway 55. Tipoff is scheduled for 1pmCT.
